PBKS Playing 11: Seems like Punjab Kings’ over-aggressive approach with the bat is backfiring them. Having lost 4 out of 7 games so far, the Kings are reeling at the 8th position on the points table and they will next face a rejuvenated Chennai Super Kings on Monday at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Punjab Kings will be looking to get back on winning ways. They have now lost two back-to-back games and one more loss will make their journey even tougher. Punjab Kings are struggling with their batting at the top and their death bowling. Even with Kagiso Rabada in their ranks, Punjab’s bowling has been a worry and they need to rethink their strategy.

PBKS have to form a winning combination. Punjab Kings are in desperate need of a win. Having lost two on the trot, they have now 3 wins and 4 losses from 7 matches against their name. PBKS needs to find the right combination to get its campaign back on winning ways before it gets too late.
Jonny Bairstow’s form is a hot debate in the PBKS camp. An in-form Bhanuka Rajapaksa has to warm the bench for an IPL household Jonny Bairstow who has been struggling with the bat this season. Jonny is yet to score a 20 this season and he has been getting opportunities after opportunities at the expense of Bhanuka Rajapaksa who went berserk in the opening two games he played for Punjab this season. Will Punjab bench Jonny for this game and bring in Rajapaksa? Well, this remains a hot debate.

Will Punjab Kings still go with an out of form Jonny Bairstow? And what about Shahrukh Khan who has been a total failure in the entire league? Rishi Dhawan or Raj Bawa could be some good replacements for Shahrukh, whereas, Bhanuka Rajapksa is still waiting in the wings to replace Jonny Bairstow.
